I have written my code for my class and i keep getting a couple of errors. Could someone take a look for me and point me in the right direction.
Here is my code:

// DateProject.cpp : Defines the entry point for the console application.
//
/*specification: Create a date class with constructors and a destructor */
#include <stdarg.h>


#include <iostream>
#include <sstream>
#include <string>

using namespace std;



class FancyDateClass 
{
private:
    int day;
    int month;
    int year;   
    static int objectCount;
public:

    string toString(void);
    string getMonth(void);
    int getDayOfWeek(void);
    int julianDate(void);
    bool isLeapYear;





    int setDate(int theDay, int theMonth, int theYear);
//  int subtract(FancyDateClass &aDateObj);   
     void getDate(int &theDay, int &theMonth, int &theYear);
     void displayDate(void);


    //constructors
    FancyDateClass(); 
    FancyDateClass(int theDay, int theMonth, int theYear);
    FancyDateClass(const FancyDateClass &aDateObj);     
     //destructor
    ~FancyDateClass();   
}; 

int FancyDateClass::objectCount = 0;

int main (void)
{



}

FancyDateClass::FancyDateClass()
{
    //default constructor
    day = 0;
    month = 0;
    year = 0;
    objectCount++;

}

FancyDateClass::FancyDateClass(int theDay, int theMonth, int theYear)
{
     //parameterized constructor
     setDate(theDay, theMonth, theYear); 
     objectCount++;
}

FancyDateClass::FancyDateClass(const FancyDateClass &aDateObj) 
{
    //copy constructor
    day = aDateObj.day;
    month = aDateObj.month;
    year = aDateObj.year;
    objectCount++;
}



FancyDateClass::~FancyDateClass() 
{
    //destructor
    objectCount--;
    cout << "Number of DateClass objects instantiated " << objectCount << endl; 
}

int FancyDateClass::julianDate(void)
{
    //return the Julian date for the current date.  The equation to calculate the Julian date is:
    //this conversion algorithm is thanks to the work of Fliegel & Van Flandern

    int theJulianDate = ( 1461 * ( year + 4800 + ( month - 14 ) / 12 ) ) / 4 + ( 367 * ( month - 2 - 12 * ( ( month - 14 ) / 12 ) ) ) / 12 - ( 3 * ( ( year + 4900 + ( month - 14 ) / 12 ) / 100 ) ) / 4 + day - 32075;

    return theJulianDate;
}

int FancyDateClass::getDayOfWeek(void)
{
    // return the day of week (M, Tu, Wed...) based on the date.  
    // Use the follow equation to calculate a day of week integer: 

    int day = theJulianDate() % 7;

    // Where: Monday = 0, Tues = 1, Wed = 3

    return day;

} 


bool FancyDateClass::isLeapYear()
{

    bool leapYear = (((year % 4 == 0) && (year % 100 != 0)) || (year % 400 == 0));

    return isLeapYear;

}
string FancyDateClass::toString(void)
{
    std::stringstream ss;
    int month = 10;
    string str;
    ss << month;
    ss >> str;

    return month;

}



int FancyDateClass::setDate(int theDay, int theMonth, int theYear)
{
    //gives the member variables a value
    //returns an error code if invalid date is entered
    //Error codes: 0 -valid date, 3 - bad year, 2 - bad month, 1 bad day

        dateCode = 2;

    //check the day
    int maxDays = 31;
    switch (theMonth) 
    {
        case 2:

            break;

    //set the values right or wrong...
    month = theMonth;

    year = theYear;

    return dateCode;
}
void FancyDateClass::getDate(int &theDay, int &theMonth, int &theYear)

//set the value of the arguements
    theDay = day;
    theMonth = month;
    theYear = year;
}

void FancyDateClass::displayDate(void)

    //display the date to the screen
    cout <<"\n\n";
    cout << "day : " << day << endl
        << "month : " << month << endl
        << "year : " << year << endl;
}

Here are the errors:

Any help would be great
Thanks in advance!!

First of all, you should use code tags, no one is going to read through your code like this.

Secondly, if you've written this code then the errors should make perfect sense. Did you even check the lines where the errors occur? If so, you need to be more precise with your variable names. For example you are mixing JulianDate and theJulianDate.

Please use code tags..I can't read your code.

Useless post, code-tags already mentioned in last post.

I have rewritten my code with tags sorry.

Is this better?
